    That happened to a guy I knew in highschool that had a Vega all tubbed out that was literally thrown together.

    Dumb question, but what exactly happened? At first I was under the impression that something wasn't tightened properly, but then after reading Face's post I think it was a welding mistake???

    A tubbed car with what appears to be a stock leaf spring suspension (and the torque to break clean)? That pretty much says it all, no? Bound to happen, not a matter of if, but when.

    So if I understand correctly, it was a combination of a bad suspension and too much horsepower/torque?

    "Use violation"? WTF? It was a vid of a car who was taking off at a dragstrip and the bottom fell out from under it at takeoff.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Like Treitz said, it was a video of a car taking off at a dragstrip and the rear axle (along with the wheels) fell off the car.
